Winchester is a quiet little town nestled on the Indiana-Ohio border and Winchester personifies everything that is good about small town living. You can have small town charm but the big cities like Indianapolis, Columbus and Dayton are just a little over an hour away. Now just because it is a small town that doesn’t mean there aren’t some really great places to enjoy a great meal. Whether you are Winchester born and bred or just in town for a business meeting, here are some of the best places to eat in Winchester.
Mrs. Wick’s is the quintessential small town pie shop, walking through the doors is like stepping into your grandmother’s kitchen with its warm delicious smells. Famous for sugar cream pie and the state made sugar cream pie the state pie and Winchester the capital. Open from 6am to 7pm the atmosphere is warm and the staff are friendly and they have a full menu not just pies. Although the pie alone is reason enough to check in.
El Carreton Mexican Restaurant
Nestled just outside of Winchester on Greenville Pike it is worth the drive. One of the best Mexican restaurants in Eastern Indiana according to one reviewer, it serves standard Mexican fare but it does it really really well. Prices are modest and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable, add it to your must try list when you’re in town.
Everett’s Place features down home cuisine, comfort food like meatloaf and ham with delicious sides, food that your mom would make. All the food is homemade and the staff is warm and friendly, the restaurant is in a beautifully restored department store conveniently attached to a theater. You have the option of eating on the balcony and doing some people watching while you wait for your food. The prices are more than reasonable with meatloaf, two sides and a drink all coming in at under $10 you really can’t go wrong.
Bogie’s Ice Cream
So this is not technically a restaurant but it is still a place you need to try. If you never been to the Mid-West in the summer time, it is HOT! Sitting down in the early evening after dinner and cooling off with a delicious cone of hand scooped ice cream while sitting at a picnic table…well there’s nothing better. It’s one of the best things about summer.
These are just a couple of places you should check out while in Winchester, try out some of the other activities around town too. Winchester is a warm and friendly town to visit, do business in or to raise a family.
